The temperature dependence (40 mK≤T≤1 K) of the oscillations in pxx in a high-mobility GaAs-(Ga,Al)As heterojunction close to Landau-level filling factor v=1/2 has been examined for many different values of θ, the angle between the normal to the sample and the magnetic field. It was found that the energy gaps associated with the fractional quantum Hall effect could be interpreted using the composite-fermion (CF) approach with a fixed CF effective mass μ at each θ. However, μ was found not to follow the θ dependence expected for a purely 2D system; i.e., the CF energy gaps at fixed v grow markedly with increasing in-plane field. Comparisons with models based on the Fang-Howard variational wave function show that this effect is due to the compression of the electronic wave function caused by the in-plane component of the magnetic field.
